After you install OL98. (If you don't have an Exchange Server)

Connect to the internet and go to Add/Remove programs and select Outlook 98.  Select to add additional Components.  It will connect to the WEB and start setup.  Let it detect settings on your computer and select to install NETFOLDERS on all of the computers you want networked.  This is the component you need to share Outlook 98 over a network.  It will work for Win95 or NT.  It actually updates by E-mail, so all of the users need an
E-mail address.

No, OL97 requires an Exchange server.  Microsoft just started using netfolders with OL98.  OL98 is a free upgrade and can be downloaded from Microsoft's website.  It is a fairly large download though.  Outlook 98 data files are completly interchangeable with OL97.  So if you decide you like 97 better you can always go back to it, but 98 has more and better features.

You can't with the internet downloaded files. Active Setup relies on the internet connection to do the install. Either order the CD or get it through another source. For instance it's included with a great book called Building Applications with Outlook 98 from Microsoft Press.

Works great with both. With MS-Mail, sharing can be almost real time by setting mail delivery to 1 minute.
